WWE Wrestlers basic salary packages was leaked online and on this page you find the details on all the current wrestlers on WWE roster at the moment and how much WWE divas make yearly with their basic contracts. The following figures only include the basic salary in the contract but some of the major PPV stars of WWE makes alot more money with big PPV events throughout the year.

Looking at the leaked information here is how the pay scale works in the excutives of WWE, starting from Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon to other executives.
  1. Vince McMahon ( CEO ) Salary In 2014 – $1,184,500
  2. George Barrios (Financial and Strategic Officer)  – $800,000
  3. Kevin Dunn (Producer)  – $800,000

  5. Paul “Triple H” Levesque (vise president live events, talent) – $550,000 + $1,000,000 in yearly talen contract and of course his WWE ring & match appearance which details are given below.

Before we get into the yearly figures lets take a look what a contract for a WWE wrestlers has in store.


Every wrestler who signs up for WWE signs a professional contract with the company stating number of years, basic salary plus bonuses and some other clauses conerning factors like release, retirement, injury layouts etc. The basic yearly salary is the downside guarantee payments, bonuses, and merchandise shares.


Some bigger names like John Cena etc enjoy PPV revenue share with the company and they make alot of money than the other stars in the roster. The PPV income figures are impossible to know because WWE never disclose this information. So we will only be taking a look at how WWE compensate their stars in basic salary and other clauses.


John Cena is the undisputed star in WWE at the moment who can be seen week after week in the ring, but he is not the highest paid wrestler but its the part timer The Rock who makes just a few PPV appearences in the year and makes around $3.5 million a year plus portion of merchandise sales and PPV revenue share.

Some of the below statements (marked in yellow) seem way out of reality. Christian doesn't wrestle anymore for WWE... Why an unutilized jobber like Zack Ryder would make over half a million dollar a year?.. Ryback making $655K while Cesaro is only making $80K?..
